Fieldbrook Family Market to close

I just became aware of this via the market’s Facebook page. This is really sad news. It’s bad enough when a business closes, but the Fieldbrook Family Market is more than just a store. It’s a community institution. It’s a gathering place for the people who live and work in the Fieldbrook area. Below is the posting that appeared on the Facebook page. – Jack

From FB:
The Fieldbrook Family Market is saying farewell. As of February 2nd we will be closing our doors. We hope to be opening up again soon, but as for now we are reaching uncertain territory with no guarantees. The past seven years have seen their share of ups and downs, with the ups far outweighing the downs. It has been an incredible pleasure and immense honor to serve this amazing community and for that reason we plan on going out with a bang. We will be having events through the weeks of January 21st til February 1st(our final day) to celebrate our all too brief time together. Our closing week hours will be 8am til 4ish with extended hours on event days. We will have music on both of those Fridays(the 25th and the 1st) and be open til 10pm. Thanks for the memories, everybody…they were pretty cool.

    i will tell you why they are closing, i went to buy a pack of tater tots and it was 3 dollars more then any other store around, its far cheaper to go to murphy’s out in blue lake and that is not saying much. if they are not a competitive or viable solution for the community then the market dictates they close down.

    This is a business worth keeping alive! The community needs it and loves it. Just needs a new start – They have always been competitive and I would shop there before going over the hill to another grocery store. The prices may have gone up recently but only out of necessity I am sure.
